創世記 40

約瑟解夢

1後來,埃及王的侍酒總管和膳食總管得罪了王, 王非常憤怒, 把他們囚禁在護衛長波提乏府內的監牢裡,也就是約瑟被囚的地方。 護衛長派約瑟去伺候他們。他們在監裡待了一段日子。

一天晚上,他們倆都做了夢,他們的夢各有不同的意思。 第二天早上,約瑟過來見他們神情沮喪, 就問:「你們今天為什麼滿面愁容?」 他們回答說:「我們都做了夢,可是沒有人給我們解夢。」約瑟說:「解夢的能力不是來自上帝嗎?請你們把夢告訴我。」

侍酒總管便把自己的夢告訴約瑟,說:「我夢見一棵葡萄樹, 10 樹上有三根枝子,枝子發芽開花,結滿了成熟的葡萄。 11 我手上拿著法老的酒杯,摘下葡萄,把汁擠在酒杯中,然後遞給法老。」 12 約瑟說:「這夢的意思是,三根枝子代表三天, 13 三天之內,法老必定釋放你,恢復你侍酒總管的職位。你仍要和從前一樣伺候法老飲酒。 14 當你再被重用的時候,請你記得恩待我,在法老面前提及我,救我出獄。 15 我是從希伯來人那裡被拐來的,無辜被囚在監。」

16 膳食總管見夢解得好,就對約瑟說:「我也做了個夢,我夢見自己頭上頂著三筐白餅, 17 最上面的一筐裡放著為法老烤製的各種食物,有鳥來吃筐內的食物。」 18 約瑟說:「這夢的意思是,三筐就是三天, 19 三天之內,法老必砍下你的頭,把你掛在木頭上,鳥要來吃你的肉。」

20 第三天是法老的生日,他宴請文武百官,把侍酒總管和膳食總管從監牢裡提出來, 21 恢復了侍酒總管的職位,讓他仍舊伺候自己飲酒, 22 卻處死了膳食總管,正應驗了約瑟的話。 23 然而,法老的侍酒總管把約瑟忘了。

Genesis 40

Joseph Interprets a Dream

1Then it came about after these things, the cupbearer and the baker for the king of Egypt offended their lord, the king of Egypt. Pharaoh was furious with his two officials, the chief cupbearer and the chief baker. So he put them in confinement in the house of the captain of the bodyguard, in the jail, the same place where Joseph was imprisoned. The captain of the bodyguard put Joseph in charge of them, and he [a]took care of them; and they were in confinement for [b]some time. Then the cupbearer and the baker for the king of Egypt, who were confined in jail, both had a dream the same night, each man with his own dream and each dream with its own interpretation. [c]When Joseph came to them in the morning and observed them, [d]behold, they were dejected. He asked Pharaoh’s officials who were with him in confinement in his master’s house, “[e]Why are your faces so sad today?” Then they said to him, “We have [f]had a dream and there is no one to interpret it.” Then Joseph said to them, “Do not interpretations belong to God? Tell it to me, please.”

So the chief cupbearer told his dream to Joseph, and said to him, “In my dream, [g]behold, there was a vine in front of me; 10 and on the vine were three branches. And as it was budding, its blossoms came out, and its clusters produced ripe grapes. 11 Now Pharaoh’s cup was in my hand; so I took the grapes and squeezed them into Pharaoh’s cup, and I put the cup into Pharaoh’s [h]hand.” 12 Then Joseph said to him, “This is the interpretation of it: the three branches are three days; 13 within three more days Pharaoh will [i]lift up your head and restore you to your [j]office; and you will put Pharaoh’s cup into his hand according to your former custom when you were his cupbearer. 14 Only [k]keep me in mind when it goes well with you, and please do me a kindness [l]by mentioning me to Pharaoh and get me out of this house. 15 For I was in fact kidnapped from the land of the Hebrews, and even here I have done nothing that they should have put me into the [m]dungeon.”

16 When the chief baker saw that he had interpreted favorably, he said to Joseph, “I also saw in my dream, and behold, there were three baskets of white bread on my head; 17 and in the top basket there were some of all [n]sorts of baked food for Pharaoh, and the birds were eating them out of the basket on my head.” 18 Then Joseph answered and said, “This is its interpretation: the three baskets are three days; 19 within three more days Pharaoh will lift up your head from you and will hang you on a tree, and the birds will eat your flesh off you.”

20 Thus it came about on the third day, which was Pharaoh’s birthday, that he made a feast for all his servants; and he lifted up the head of the chief cupbearer and the head of the chief baker among his servants. 21 He restored the chief cupbearer to his [o]office, and he put the cup into Pharaoh’s [p]hand; 22 but he hanged the chief baker, just as Joseph had interpreted to them. 23 Yet the chief cupbearer did not remember Joseph, but forgot him.
